Reasons to Give

"We wrote Dear Evan HansenThe Greatest Showman and La La Land, but we also wrote the adaptation of the James Howe book Horace and Morris but Mostly Delores.  It was one of the first jobs that we ever got in New York City, and Barbara Pasternack had faith in us.  It was a fantastic first opportunity that led to so many more.  Thanks for being a part of our start, our launch in our careers –– as you have been for so many other writers." 

– Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Winners
